Psychotherapy is unique & takes courage. It's fulfilling-yet challenging. Using empathy, collaboration, intuition, open mindedness & humor, we will identify automatic ways of thinking, & behaving- that show up as internal conflict, self sabotage, low self esteem, depression, relationship struggles & anxiety. I have a wide array of experience, working with diverse populations, including people of color, people with depression and anxiety, those experiencing psychosis, queer identified folks, folks with complex PTSD & developmental trauma, those with learning differences, & students with achievement struggles and imposter syndrome. I believe that every client has the capacity to actualize, heal, and lead a fulfilling life. I'm warm & collaborative, process oriented & interactive. I am not overly directive or authoritative. I utilize psychodynamic and humanistic therapeutic techniques. I provide a safe space for you to process your thoughts and emotions. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a reparative experience & facilitates healing. Contacting a therapist can be overwhelming. Doing so takes courage, and shows your innate desire to heal. Vulnerability is a great strength. Let go of who you think you should be and embrace the freedom of your true authenticity.
